We visited the lovely town of Beaufort on a trip north from Florida. Fellow reviewers pointed us to this great spot. Made a Friday night reservation for 8p about a week before and arrived 15 minutes early to have a drink at the bar. Bartender whipped up a speciality martini for me and suggested a nice wine for my wife.... More

We were there for dinner today (they are not open for lunch) and had one of the best meals we have ever had in the Bluffton/Beaufort area. The menu changes daily. I think only one item on the main menu was over $20. They offered a full veal shank for $18. My dining partner and I shared a margherita pizza.... More

I had the salmon and it was the best I have ever had. My friends that live there say they also have great pizza that has to be eaten there, no take out. When asked why they said they were to busy to be able to have take out as well as dine in.

This is only my third visit to Old Bull Tavern. Whenever I travel to Beaufort I make sure to dine here. I chose to celebrate my birthday here on my most recent trip. The weight staff was very pleasant, friendly and knowledgeable. I had beef tenderloin and my daughter had salmon. Both were delicious. Thank you, Old Bull Tavern. This... More

We ordered almost all of the appetizers and small plates along with the applewood bacon pizza. AWESOME! More fun and we got to try several dishes. The white anchovies are amazing!

Great place to eat, hidden down a sleepy side street. Drinks are great, food is tasty and includes everything from appetizers, mid sized plates to delicious dinners. Make a reservation if you plan to eat there on a Friday or Saturday, and well in advance. It is a great gathering spot for locals as well!

We stopped at Beaufort on the way to Savannah and decided to stay for dinner at The Old Bull Tavern. The host/owner was very welcoming, he checked on us several times during dinner to make sure everything was to our liking. Food is delicious! Between 4 of us we had gnocchi, pork chop, burger, salad and liver pate. All cooked... More

This is not tavern food. The Old Bull featured great food in a tavern like atmosphere. Easily top two restaurants in Beaufort.

We recently stayed in Beaufort for 5 nights, eating in a different restaurant each night. We ate at all the highly rated restaurants, and it turned out our best meal was at the Old Bull Tavern.
